Q. spaghetti squash

My Spaghetti Squash plant is growing and I have many blossoms. But the actual squash gets about 1/2 to 1 inch diameter and formed nicely one day and the next day it looks like something sucked the insides out (looks like a yellow raisin). What is wrong?

Q. Spaghetti squash

I planted two spaghetti squash plants early this summer. There are already a few that are huge, but they are a light cream color. I am worried if I wait until fall to harvest them, as is recommended, they might be woody or not good to eat. Any suggestions? I live in Eugene, Oregon and we have had a hot, hot (100 degrees many days) summer so far.
Thanks in advance.

Here is an article on determining spaghetti squash ripeness that will help you. It looks as though your squash has the ability of ripening off the vine so harvesting them when you did should be inconsequential.
